Terms and conditions

To be eligible for this promotion, you must have a valid method of payment on file when you place your order. You are responsible for paying the first month maintenance fee, plus any applicable VAT on the land you take delivery of, at the time we deliver the land. Normal monthly maintenance billing cycles apply thereafter. Land orders will be delivered to your account within 24 hours of placing your order, unless additional information is required.

We must receive your island order case submission between October 21 12:01 a.m. (Pacific) and October 23 11:59 p.m. (Pacific). Orders received outside of this period will not be processed.

Developed islands are not eligible for this promotion. This promotion can not be combined with any other promotion or discount. Ownership of at least one Full Region is required before Homesteads can be purchased pursuant to this promotion.

Frequently asked questions

When will I receive the island I ordered?

Within 24 hours of filing your case, your new island will be delivered to your account and you will be notified that your delivery has been completed via an email case response to your order.

Can I order a Homestead Region without owning a Full Region?

No, you must already own a Full Region (island) to be eligible to purchase a Homestead Region or Openspace Region. Verified educational or non-profit customers remain exempt.

Why do I have to pay the first month maintenance at time of delivery?

Normally, the first month island maintenance is included as part of the island set-up fee and is considered to be billed in advance. As we are not collecting a set-up fee, we still have to collect the island maintenance fee, plus any applicable VAT for the next 30 days usage of the island and the resources it consumes to run it at time of delivery.

How do I make sure that I have a valid method of payment on file so I can place an order?

See Billing in the Second Life Knowledge Base for information on adding a payment method to your account. If you are outside the US, see Local Payments in the Second Life Knowledge Base.

If you are still not sure, you can contact our billing specialists 24 hours a day, seven days a week. See Contacting Linden Lab billing support for more information.
